Workshops

Public mapping workshops during neighbourhood festivals or specific public events are a fantastic way to collect data addressing a large and diversified audience (age, social class, professional background, sex).
It is also a way to make visible the map, like a live demo, so participants can test its usefulness, see how much they learn from the existing data.
And it is finally an incredible opportunity for who run the workshop to listen to the specific expertise of everyone, to discuss about local territories and planning expectations and though to learn a lot.

Five workshops have been run for the moment :
- 10 March 2016 : local workshop in Old Oak  with members of Grand Union Alliance (Methodist Harlesden Church)

- 25 April 2016 : metropolitan workshop during the Just Space conference (UCL, Gordon street)

- 18 June 2016 : local workshop in Deptford during a neighbourhood festival organised at the Old Tidemill Garden

- 25 June 2016 : metropolitan workshop during the #ReclaimOurSpaces event at Conway Hall

- 10 September 2016 : local workshop in Deptford during a neighbourhood festival organised at the Old Tidemill Garden, Take Back Deptford.
